Girl talk: my fight with uterine fibroids

Its funny how your life can change when you least expect it. I went to the doctor because I was fighting a pretty bad cold and received information that would forever change my life. "Are you pregnant?" the doctor asked with a slight smile as she pressed on my stomach. "No," I answered with as … Continue reading Girl talk: my fight with uterine fibroids

Let them eat cake!

A couple of weeks ago, I attended the wedding of one of my dearest friends, who I've known since college. The ceremony was small and intimate, and the reception was beautiful as well as elegant. We partied on the rooftop overlooking the ocean and even though it had rained most of the day, the sky … Continue reading Let them eat cake!

We’ve got a groovy kind of love

About a month ago during one of my talks with God, I confessed that I'd been feeling a bit down and out of sorts.

And one of the examples that I gave, was the untangling of my necklaces and earrings that tend to wrapped up in one another since I don't have a proper jewelry box to … Continue reading It could all be so simple

It’s Never to Late For Now

It’s Wednesday, the week is almost over, and for that I am thankful. I went to church on Sunday to recharge my batteries so to speak, and to prepare for another week. Monday was actually a pretty good day, then yesterday, for a lack of a better term, crap hit the fan. I won’t bore … Continue reading It’s Never to Late For Now

Destined for Greatness

  Today started out just like any other day,  me dreading going into work, unsure of what was waiting for me other than drama. As I fought against the negative thoughts that were beginning to consume me, I knew I needed to do something to lift my spirits before all was lost. After I ended … Continue reading Destined for Greatness
